About us

Who are we and how did our adventure with sprouts begin?

This is Małgorzata Zakłos-Szyda, I would like to welcome you to our website. I have the great pleasure of being one third of the team, which is an extraordinary scientific trio who met at the Lodz University of Technology and who share a passion for healthy eating and science - from these passions ALFA9 sprouted. Our main motivation to start cooperation was the desire to introduce to the market a product with a high content of active ingredients based on a natural composition. Today, we can proudly admit that we have succeeded, and the product based on extremely nutritious alfalfa sprouts is now available to everyone, including the elderly, vegans and athletes.

Hi, I'm also very glad you're here. My name is Edyta Gendaszewska-Darmach and I would like to secretly tell you that our superpower is mutually complementary competences : at the higher education level, Grażyna Budryn holds an M.Sc. technical sciences, specializing in chemical technology, Małgorzata Zakłos-Szyda - M.Sc. technical sciences, specializing in biotechnology, and I graduated in biology with a specialization in molecular biology. We all have habilitated doctor degrees, and Grażyna Budryn is also a full professor. Together, we created a health-promoting mixture based on alfalfa sprouts fermented by a selected strain of lactic acid bacteria . Finally, we used an innovative freeze-drying method to preserve the valuable nutritional properties of food for longer.

What exactly is ALFA9? My name is Grażyna Budryn and I am in a hurry to answer. Our product is food available in two flavors: fruit and vegetable , each of them is characterized by a wealth of nutrients supporting the proper functioning of the body. As you already know, we really like healthy eating, but at the same time we also value practical solutions and we believe that you also focus on functionality in your daily diet. Therefore, our product is perfect as an addition to yogurt (including vegan), kefir, cottage cheese, and in the vegetable version, additionally to a dip or vinaigrette - all to make it as convenient as possible, as well as healthy and tasty .


Who is Alfa9 intended for?

Our mixture is intended for physically active people, mentally active people and seniors, as well as everyone else who wants to follow a healthy, well-balanced diet. Alfa9 will also be useful in the case of many health ailments, helping to maintain proper cholesterol and blood sugar levels, as well as regulating digestion processes.

In what form can Alfa9 be taken?

Alfa9 is available in the form of a powdered, freeze-dried mixture with fruit flavor with wild rose and elderberry and vegetable flavor with green peas and spinach. The contents of the selected vegetable sachet should be mixed with e.g. yogurt, kefir, vegetable cocktail, cottage cheese, dip or vinaigrette sauce. In turn, the fruit mixture tastes best with yogurt, including vegan yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, and creamy milk dessert.

What other health benefits does Alpha9 bring?

The mixture based on freeze-dried sprouts is rich in the most important vitamins and minerals, as well as fiber and lactic acid bacteria and their metabolites. Alpha9 also supplements the body with proteins and the amino acids they contain, necessary for building muscle tissue and regenerating damaged cells. Due to the content of GABA produced by lactic acid bacteria, the product also has a relaxing effect, increases resistance to stress and alleviates sleep problems.

Does the product contain added sugars?

NO. The Alfa9 mixture is completely free of added sugars and artificial sweeteners, so it does not contribute to excessive increases in glucose levels.

Once I open the product, can I finish it the next day?

After opening the sachet with the product, it is recommended to consume a portion of the mixture on the same day due to the freeze-dried nature of the product, which is susceptible to absorbing moisture, which may impair flowability.

Can Alfa9 be consumed by children and seniors?

The Alfa9 product is suitable for people of all ages, including seniors and children. The health-promoting mixture based on sprouts is especially targeted at older people who want to comprehensively support their body and take care of their health.

What does it mean that Alfa9 ingredients are freeze-dried?

The freeze-drying process involves evaporating up to 96% of water from previously frozen products. In this way, the Alfa9 ingredients are properly preserved, which extends their shelf life and makes them lighter, while preventing the loss of valuable health-promoting values.
